San Francisco Lyric Chorus

The San Francisco Lyric Chorus is celebrating two important San Francisco centennial anniversaries.  First is the Panama Pacific Expo of 1915, and second is the hundredth anniversary of the Mission Dolores Basilica.  The San Francisco Lyric Chorus will be performing in the Basilica on Saturday and Sunday. And it’s worth noting that all of the music in their program would have been familiar to audiences in 1915.

The voices you’re hearing are from the San Francisco Lyric Chorus, under the direction of Robert Gurney. The Chorus will be performing "Ein Deutsches Requiem" by Johannes Brahms for their summer concert. The composer said this requiem is intended “to comfort the living, and to remember those who are gone.”  The San Francisco Lyric Chorus will be at St.
